    Make sure you tell us what your dictionary says about any unusual words. I'd expect a good question to include what you think "millennium" means.

Have you looked up the word "millennium" it means "The prophesied 1000 year reign of Christ". (Wiktionary sense 2)

This is a technical use by Christians, and is in addition to the normal sense of "a period of 1000 years)

The pastor is saying that if we love each other, we can cause Christ to return to Earth as predicted in the book of Revelation of the Bible.
